COLLEGE OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

Kinesiology and Health Science

 

SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Blended Physical Education Option

Justification:

Due to requirements mandated by the California Commission of Teacher Credentialing for the Blended Physical Education Option the Department of  Kinesiology and Health Science is proposing the following programmatic change:

  1. Removal of EDTE 116, Psychology of Instruction (3)
  2. Creation of KINS 381, Methods of Teaching Secondary Physical Education (3). KINS 381 will infuse elements of EDTE 116 but from the unique perspective of teaching secondary physical education.
  3. Revision of current KINS 380 to focus solely on methods of elementary physical education. KINS 380 will also address elements from EDTE 116 but from the perspective of teaching elementary physical education. New title: Methods of Teaching Elementary Physical Education (3)

Blended Physical Education Program

Justification:

Due to the infusion of PACT and other CTC requirements for credentialing into the seminars associated with student teaching, the value of each seminar needs to be increased from 1 unit to 3 units. This increase in class units will now reflect the additional workload for both students and faculty. In order to comply with the mandated allowed unit count for a blended program, EDTE 471 A will be reduced to 5 units and EDTE 471B will be reduced to 4 units.

 

COLLEGE OF SOCIAL SCIENCES & INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES

Ethnic Studies

 

SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Ethnic Studies-Education Concentration

Justification:

Ethnic Studies proposes the addition of a new concentration (Ethnic Studies-Education) to our existing five concentrations (General Ethnic Studies, Asian American Studies, Chicana/o Studies, Native American Studies, and Pan African Studies) for our majors.  A major in Ethnic Studies totals 36 units, of which 24 units are required core course and 12 units are elective courses for the concentration.  The Ethnic Studies-Education concentration will also consist of 12 units.  Please see page 3 of the attached proposal.

According to data from our last five-year program review, it is estimated that at least half of Ethnic Studies graduates pursue careers in K-6 education.  To create a direct pipeline to a teacher credential program, the Ethnic Studies Department, in cooperation with the faculty in the Bilingual Multicultural Education  Department, propose the creation of this new Ethnic Studies-Education concentration that has two tracks: Prospective Teachers in Urban Settings and Prospective Teachers in Bilingual Settings.
